May 12, 2008 - SAS unveiled a new solution based on VMware virtualization to monitor, manage and optimize IT operations across all physical and virtual environments.


SAS IT Intelligence for VMware Infrastructure will enable customers to align IT resources with strategic business goals. 


Integrating technologies from SAS and VMware streamlines physical and virtual resource utilization, providing a view for IT resource forecasting and foresight into planning scenarios.


“This partnership with VMware extends SAS’ expertise in managing open systems and mainframes to virtual environments,” explains Keith Collins, vice president and chief technology officer for SAS. “With a more comprehensive view of their IT resources, businesses can more accurately forecast resource requirements, improve the delivery of IT services, account for IT resources down to the minute and feed results to internal or external billing or revenue systems based on planned business needs. The result is increased ROI driven by better decisions.” 


With VMware VirtualCenter, SAS IT Intelligence now enables a datacenter to automatically run, manage, account for and predict IT needs. VMware VirtualCenter is the management component of VMware Infrastructure, a market-leading datacenter virtualization and management platform.
